The Eastern Coastliner

On Saturday 23rd November 2019, we embarked on a new journey and made visits to a selection of friendly bus and coach operators. We started the day with a visit a pick up from York with AM04SEE which was provided by Morse Coaches of Sheriff Hutton, on arrival at the companies premises we were greeted with complimentary tea and biscuits. From here we undertook a scenic drive to Flaxton village aboard their very impressive R428EOS were photographs were available. We then returned to Sherriff Hutton for more tea and biscuits before travelling on to Malton aboard another one of Morse Coaches VIP standard vehicles in the form of M50RSY. On arrival at Fletcher's Coaches we were met by Dennis who is a very freindly chap. Shortly after photographs etc we departed for Hull aboard N2FCT for another relaxing journey through the countryside. We then joined LJ03MDU and travelled onto Abbey Travel's premises to the east of the city for a further vehicle change. This time we boarded LF52ZRO for our journey across to the popular Ellie Rose who operate a variety of great double decker buses. Shortly after we departed aboard LF52ZPC which dropped to us on Holderness Road for a brief lunch break. After lunch we were then greeted by Luke and boarded LK04HZB which took us over to a regular photo stop on Somerdon Road where we once again changed vehicles, this time for LK04JCZ whick conveyed us to Hull Ferry Terminal for additional photographs etc. On returning to the depot we joined Y784WHH provided by Lords Coaches and travelled down to their premises where we changed vehicles for R200MGS before travelling onto Hull and joining S499UAK for our final jounrney to York provided by Hopwood Coaches.
